Even though it was a blowout, I had a blast at the game. People in my section were cool as ****.
The crowd is definitely inside Blatche's dome, you can literally see his mind processing the boos the moment he touched the ball. Crowd really let him have it when Nate outjumped him for that rebound.
GS had a ridiculous amount of open shots, particularly in the first quarter. I mean its the basic fundamentals that the team is failing on. Its not like GS ran anything exotic or over the top creative. If it were restricted to just a player or two, it could be excusable, but its a systemic problem that reflects horribly on the roster & the coaches.
It is depressing to see a team with so many shooters, when we struggle so much in that area.

oh and John Wall is really good, like really good.
last note, Vesely has no offensive game so he must be able to finish around the rim, even with contact. Golden State is not exactly a defensive powerhouse in the middle, and he couldn't get through them. The hustle and energy is nice, but he eventually has to show that he is capable of developing something of value on the offensive end.
Man outside of Wall and maybe Booker this team is a complete mess.
We NEED to sign some FAs this summer. I know Ted has his "plan" but that "plan" is going to cause Wall to walk first chance he gets. We need an infusion of quality professional caliber players in here.
McGee doesn't have a signature play to ***** about and now everyone, including the wittman fan club at bullets forever, is talking about our overall defense being bad. Of course those clown are blaming pick and roll instead of accepting the fact that we don't bother shooters on the perimeter. I've rarely seen a team that gets murdered by open jump shots as often as the wizards in transition. They just let guys run up to there spots and shoot like they are at practice.
Which brings me to the coaching staff which has been a bad fit at best. Saunders long 2 point shot offense was pretty much the worst fit and I can't figure wtf whittman is doing on offense. When our old man club is in we are all about drive and kick out, when they aren't it's hero ball time. Wall, Young, Crawford, and McGee all get the ball and the rest of the team stops moving and watches the show. Worst of all is his decision who to put on the floor. It feels like he's just trying **** randomly. People laughed when McGee said he wasn't clear on coaches message... You think Seraphin understands why he's lost all his minutes so that Blatche can get some cardio workouts? You think anyone understands the coaches intent with the Singleton roller coaster? But hey he's tough and talks about cigarettes and smoking totally sucks and stuff.
Fire Grunfeld and let the new GM pick a coach that matches his vision and the types of players he has/acquires. John Wall is going to improve and deserves a team that isn't put together with duct tape and delusion.
I thought Wall was equally as bad on defense tonight as he was good on offense.
Blatche is second guessing himself now because of the boos. Such a strong mental force, the Blatche is.

And how Vinny Cerrato with a wig and fake mustache is still the GM of this team, I'll never know. Who in the world gets to rebuild a team twice while in the process getting out of the first round ONCE????
Ernie Grunfeld is the most successful GM in this franchise in THIRTY PLUS years.
Who would coach or GM Les Boulez/The Wizards. One of the worst franchises in the NBA for 3 decades.
You have to walk before you can run. You can't get big names to oversee this mess. It's a death sentence. Take the money and run....FAST.
This is chipwich:
Ernie's contract is up at the end of the year, this is the biggest (and should be easiest) call of Ernie's early tenure as owner.
If he extends Ernie, I lose faith in the man.
Ernie is coming back and Ted is dumb. Even if Ernie isn't coming back, Ted is still dumb. At least give the new guy more time.
Look at the Capitals. Their dumb GM still has a job. Ted doesn't like changes.
It's been broken since I watched them win a title. 30 plus years ago.
NBA is not for the weak at heart.
I am sure a "real" GM wants to GM our team.

The Wizards are still an NBA franchise. Go out and hire a young, hungry up and comer who will be happy to be an NBA GM. Someone who is innovative and not afraid to take chances. What big name did expansion team Oklahoma City hire to build their team? Or the guy in Denver? Or Memphis? Redskins fans seem to think the only way to win is to only get established big names but more often then not it's better to get a young hungry up and comer and let him develop into the next big thing. Everyone starts off as a nobody.
